Product description


This practical, down-to-earth guide to the minefield of being a man in the 1990s includes advice on sex, relationships, emotions, work, violence, health and fatherhood.

From the Back Cover


The nineties have seen an explosion of interest in men. From TV chat shows to women's magazines, masculinity has become one of the hottest topics of the decade.

In this practical, down-to-earth and witty guide, Mick Cooper and Peter Baker explore the key issues facing men today such as sex, relationships, health and work.

'The MANual' suggests men could benefit from taking a fresh look at themselves and developing a greater sense of self-awareness.

The social and psychological pressure to be a 'real man' are enormous. 'The MANual' encourages man to open themselves up to new ways of being and to enjoy the exciting and rewarding opportunities this can bring.


Mick Cooper is a counsellor and visiting lecturer of psychology at Brighton University. Peter Baker is a writer, journalist and contributing health and fitness editor of 'Maxim'. Both authors have written extensively on the issue of men and masculinity and have run men's groups and workshops for many years.

'A hugely readable book and a stark mirror for men in the nineties. Every chapter uncovers aspects of ourselves we didn't even know we possessed.'
NICK FISHER, author of 'The Pocket Guide to Sex' and ''agony uncle''.
